941 Liabilities Payroll Dates

My 941 has the wrong payroll dates every week but the amount is correct, how do I get the correct payroll dates without manually changing it every time?  Also, it doesn't like to apply the payment (because of dates?) yet I can see the payment below.  Normally it would apply it and take it off of the upper part that says "Pay taxes & other liabilities"

Re: 941 Liabilities Payroll Dates

Hello there, @HGCFW.


The liability period depends on your payroll settings. To update or change the dates, kindly follow these steps:

  1. On the same window, go to the Other Activities section and click Change Payment Method.
  2. Go to the Schedule Payments tab and highlight Federal 941/944/943.
  3. Hit Edit and update the Payment (deposit) frequency.
  4. Click Finish.
  5. Proceed with other taxes if you like to update them too.

That should avoid you from manually editing the tax setup, @HGCFW. For more insights about taxes and payroll functionality in QBDT, I'm adding some links below:

Let me know the results or if you have additional payroll questions by leaving a comment below. I'm still here to help you more. Have a wonderful day!
